Container transport by train or inland vessel will significantly reduce your CO2 footprint. EGS will gladly think along with you about the implementation of the appropriate intermodal and synchromodal concepts. Via our frequent rail and barge connections, we quickly, efficiently and sustainably transport your containers between seaports and hinterland. Climate and cost benefits often go hand in hand in that respect.
